Why are my plums rotting as soon as they're ripe?

United Kingdom Gb

My plum tree has hundreds of plums on it but they are just rotting, sapping and shriveling before I can harvest them. Many are even rotten on one side before the other side is ripe. Is the tree diseased? Do I have a pest? Any ideas would be gratefully received.

Did you thin down the crop?
