WTH has happend to my potatos

Spiro Mira, bought from Marshalls because they were advertised as disease resistant, just dug my first plant and found slime oozing from one cut it open and found this. there are tiny white things inside and I noticed them on the surface of the potatoes so my whole crop may be affected. The ground has not been used for potatoes for at least ten years. Any ideas?

    I think that could be Hollow Heart Disease ... caused by changeable environmental conditions ... very likely this year sadly.  

    Gardening in Central Norfolk on improved gritty moraine over chalk ... free-draining.
