A user has created an aspx page, but not checked it in.

Only discovered when trying to create the page again (with same name) - it won't let us, because the page already exists.

Is there any way to view/access pages that have been created, but left checked out, by people who have since left?

In your document library, do the following:

  1. Settings - Document Library Settings
  2. Under Permissions and Management click on Manage files which have no checked in version
  3. From this page you can select files and choose to take ownership, after which you should see them in views and can delete them
