How to stop GitHub vulnerability alerts from deleted branch?

GitHub reported vulnerability from a file that is in a branch that I no longer use. So, I deleted the branch as it was not required any more but, the vulnerability alert is still visible.

How do I dismiss this alert? How can I tell GitHub that a branch no longer exists and stop vulnerability alerts for it?
