This item cannot be deleted because it is still referenced by other pages while deleting page layout in SharePoint 2010

I go this error while trying to delete a page layout from the master page and page layout galery. It was saying "This item cannot be deleted because it is still referenced by other pages ". Previously I have created a web site and also changed the layout, to this layout that I was trying to delete. Also I was not able to delete the Site, because this layout was throwing some error. So I go to Site actions then Manage Content and Structure as shown in the figure below.


 Then from there I select delete and delete the site as shown in the figure below.

After this when I tried to delete the layout, it worked for me. So you have to delete all the sites and then you have to delete the page layout. Also you can check SharePoint 2010 articles here.
