We are currently in an epidemic of catalytic converter thefts within the UK.

The precious metals within the catalysts themselves are worth a lot of money to criminals.

These brazen thief's patrol looking for vehicles with high value catalytic converters to steal. They will often jack a car up, remove the catalyst and be gone within 60 seconds.

They don't care if they steal them during the day or at night. People have been threatened with physical violence when confronting these people. These people often have tools that can be used as weapons to cause serious harm to people.

People's livelihoods are being affected as certain hybrid cars which contain higher than average amounts of the precious metals are used for taxis.

If the Government make it law that you have to have a licence to sell catalytic converters, this would stop a lot of these crimes happening.
