It's a tree canker. Not much you can do to stop it.

Looks like a pretty young tree. Is it advisable to cut the tree down to stop the disease from spreading to other trees Ian?

I would remove the tree. It is not likely to survive this such a large canker. The fungi/bacteria enter the tree usually from a mechanical injury (break in the bark). Getting rid of this canker will lessen the chances of spread to other trees.
