Dangerous road surface across roundabout junction causing car to jump across road surface

There is a large patch of tarmac road surface that is deteriorating at a rapid rate. It it so bad now that when you come around the roundabout the car is jumping and skipping out to the left and is not following the line of the steering inputs any more. This is dangerous beyond belief as well as being damaging to the vehicles using the road.

This damaged surface predates the COVID pandemic but has recently gone from being uncomfortable to drive over to downright dangerous as you can no longer trust your vehicle to follow the inputs you are giving it. This needs repairing ASAP to prevent an accident happening.
