Azure: Cannot delete a Virtual Network Gateway

I created a Virtual Network Gateway this morning, but wasn't clear on the configuration, so decided to delete it and (eventually) start over. But, I don't seem to be able to delete it from either the portal or Powershell.

At some point while I was trying to clean it up, the resource has ended up in the "failed" provisioning state, but I can't find any information about why.

There are no connections associated with this gateway.

In the portal, the task to delete fails with this error message: The resource operation completed with terminal provisioning state 'Failed'.

Using Powershell, I get this:

> Remove-AzVirtualNetworkGateway -Verbose -Name "<redacted>" -ResourceGroupName "<redacted>"

VERBOSE: Performing the operation "Removing resource ..." on target "<redacted>".

Confirm
Are you sure you want to remove resource '<redacted>'
[Y] Yes  [N] No  [S] Suspend  [?] Help (default is "Y"): Y
Remove-AzVirtualNetworkGateway: Long running operation failed with status 'Failed'. Additional Info:'An error occurred.'StatusCode: 200
ReasonPhrase: OK
Status: Failed
ErrorCode: InternalServerError
ErrorMessage: An error occurred.

What am I doing wrong? I just need to delete this resource, but the error message provides absolutely no useful information.
