Bramley Apple tree with split trunk

We have an old Bramley tree in the back garden that has faithfully produced apples for at least 30 years. I have not looked at it for a few years. I noticed today that there is a large break in the main trunk of about one metre and up to 100 mm wide. The wood inside is hard (ie not flaking away), but there are many small holes of about a millimetre diameter. This has clearly been this way for a few years, but is there anything that I can do to rid it of whatever is in it to stop it progressing further. The tree is now in full leaf.

Any suggestions welcome.
