Road markings make no sense. Two forward arrows and a left. It’s either left or right. Needs rectifying.

  • Traffic Signs Manual Ch 5... 6.7.2. It is possible that the use of a right-turn arrow on the approach to a roundabout might encourage some drivers, particularly those from overseas, to turn the wrong way into the circulatory carriageway. Therefore straight ahead arrows are appropriate.
