The Prime Minister said he was "absolutely delighted" that Abu Qatada had been deported to Jordan.
He said: "This is something this government said it would get done and we have got it done and it's an issue, like the rest of the country, that has made my blood boil.
"That this man who has no right to be in our country, who is a threat to our country, and then it was so long and so difficult to deport him. We've done it. He's back in Jordan and that's excellent news."
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.
