Picked my car up today after they had changed a coil due to the toxic fume light coming on . So as i am driving home it came on again so i ring them up and they said dont drive it and get the AA to recover it to them . Is this an overeaction or are they right , will i do anymore damage ???

either injector or cylinder or gasket

Ive got the same problem on mine at the moment. Though saying that im not getting any warning lights.

I juust cant rev over 6000 rpm!

Had an injector replaced today and its still the same.

If the "toxic Fume" light comes on you really shouldn't drive the car, as the fault indicates that there is a misfire..

The misfiring cylinder will obviously not be burning correctly and therefore dumping unburnt petrol into the exhaust, This in turn enters the Cat and will very quickly destroy it as it ignites and burns the monolyth due the extreme Cat operating temperatures.

It could be a reason to reject a warranty claim for Cat replacement, although generaly Cat failure due to a misfire should be covered under consiquential damage..
