There is a complete hollow in the main trunk which you can see through from one side to the other. Is this ok or could it cause problems?

The tree may have problems getting water and nutrients from the ground up through the trunk and network of branches and leaves. But if the tree looks healthy, then it has probably devised a way to get around it. Keep checking to make sure it is structurally sound.
