If unmarked you can legally go around the round about entering from the left lane. Its just advised not to.

How long have you your driving licence, or have you got one?

This ^^^^

The only legal requirement AFAIK in the traffic regulations is that you must turn left when entering a roundabout, note traffic regulations are the SI's that courts, barristers etc. rely on rather than the RoTR which are guidelines.

You are also legally required to follow any regulatory road markings.
So in effect the unmarked roundabout is a free for all?

If it's unmarked then yes, if it has lane markings then no but the ONLY SI AFAIK referring specifically to roundabouts is that when entering you must turn left.

Recently i was on a dual carriage way. Two lanes into roundabout and two out for north and south traffic with the east and west roads joining the roundabout being single lane.
I entered the roundabout in the right lane as traffic in left was indicating left. I gave way to a car coming round in the left lane of the roundabout. I'd expected the driver to take the next exit but he didn't, I had a feeling something wasn't right. He didn't take the exit for the junction i was taking either and so passed directly in front of my bonnet. He'd gone around the whole roundabout in the left lane. I had my eye on him and could see it coming so I was prepared, but the car behind me nearly flew into my rear.
No such thing as a free for all on any roundabout!
