Problems With Cache Removal Page Removal

I made a mistake within the databse of a new site and found non relelvant pages were created as a result.
I added these pages to the robots file and removed hem using the Google removal tool in sitemaps.

A few days later some more pages apear so i repeat the process, but this time i get a denied message.

"The content you submitted for cache removal appears on the live third-party page.

As you may know, information in our search results is actually located on third-party, publicly available webpages. Even if we removed this page from our index, the content in question would still be available on the web."

First of all this was not a cache removal request it was a url removal request, which i repeated to make sure I had not made a mistake.

I just don't understand why the message, especially when the first batch of pages were removed ok.

Has anyone elese had this issue?

Are the pages that you want removed on your domain and did you verify ownership of that domain in Google's Webmaster Central?

Hi
The answer is yes to both

As I said two days earlier, the first batch of pages were removed no problem, I have also done this many times before when changing other sites.

It is the first time I have ever got this message.

for what it is worth I have the same problem. Numerous pages that it won't let me remove. Could it be that the 'CONTENT' of that page is somewhere else so therefore it won't let the page be removed?
This is what is on Google... "As you may know, information in our search results is actually located on third-party, publicly available webpages. Even if we removed this page from our index, the content in question would still be available on the web." Does it mean that actual page is live somehwre (mine isn't and as been gone for months) OR does it mean the content is live somewhere?

I have the same problem too. You can find numerous posts regarding this issue on web. Probably bug in webmaster tools imho.
