The Prime Minister has said that deporting radical cleric Abu Qatada was a "priority" for the government.
His plane left RAF Northolt at 02:45 BST to take him to his home country of Jordan, which he has not visited in 20 years.
Deporting Abu Qatada was a priority for this govt,there was a clear plan+a right and stubborn refusal to bow to what many thought inevitable
Abu Qatada has finally left Britain to face terror charges in Jordan after nearly a decade long legal battle to deport the radical cleric.
Abu Qatada has been deported from the UK to Jordan to stand trial on terrorism charges after nearly 10 years of legal disputes.
With reports that Abu Qatada will leave the UK early on Sunday, it looks like Theresa May has finally won the battle to deport him.
