I'll see if i can find anything "official". Found: scroll down https://mag.toyota.co.uk/catalytic-converter-theft-how-to-protect-your-car/ 

"In May 2021, Toyota (GB) announced that it would be covertly marking more than 100,000 catalytic converters in order to combat theft. By working with police and Smar****er, catalytic converters can be tagged with an invisible yet traceable marking, meaning that a stolen catalytic converter can be traced to a specific crime, helping police in their attempts to fight the organised gangs responsible. It also raises the risk to all those handling the devices along the criminal chain, from theft to eventual disposal and recycling.

It is free to get the catalytic converter marked, all customers need to do is call their local Toyota or Lexus retailer to arrange a visit."

I'd still shoot the bastards.

Thanks for the heads up! I’ll get that done ASAP, plus I’m curious whether the catlock for older vehicles. 
 

edit to add - you reckon it’s worth declaring the anti theft devices would reduce insurance premiums? Might end up paying for itself.
