This is the smirking face of Muslim hate cleric Abu Qatada leaving prison this morning after successfully appealing his deportation to Jordan.

The terror suspect was freed on bail after winning the latest stage in a long running battle against his extradition.

Qatada left Long Lartin Prison travelling in the back seat of a dark Blue Volkswagen mini-van at 11.10am.

Wearing a grey coat and a dark grey hat bearded Qatada made no attempts to hide from the media scrum and visibly grinned as he was rushed out of the Worcestershire prison bound for his London home.

Following the granting of bail yesterday Qatada’s solicitor arrived at the maximum-security prison at around 7am yesterday morning to complete the formalities of his release.

He appeared calm as he was escorted by several men to the van that had arrived over an hour-and-a-half previously to collect him.

Qatada will now return to his Sudbury home where he will be under a 16 hour curfew and monitored by an electronic tag.

His release comes after the Home Secretary Theresa May saw attempts to deport him to Jordan thwarted, although the British government can still appeal.
