removing log files from version control

Hi,

Sorry for this, what seems a simple question...

I have a big project that is under subversion control, and there are a
bunch of log files that have got committed to the project.

So someone went to the repostory and deleted those file using tortoise,
so they are no longer in the repository for checkouts, which is good.

But now all the local copes can't commit as they get errors like;
Transmitting file data .svn: Commit failed (details follow):
svn: File not found: transaction '917-1', path
'/servers/projects/whatever.log'

what is the recommended ways to remove these files from versioning
control in the local working copies. I tried using "svn delete", but I
get this;

[root@sfefwfew018 jboss]# svn delete readme.html
svn: Use --force to override this restriction
svn: 'readme.html' has local modifications

and force, actually deletes the local file, which I don't want

Thanks,

Tom
