Sounds like the roll restricter has come adrift to me. open the bonnet and carefully see if you can rock the engine back and forth - If you can then that is the problem. You will need to get it jacked up and take the engine tray off. The roll restricter is bolted to the chassis and the gearbox/engine - it usually means that the bolt has sheared.

not too expensive - around the the 70 mark for a new restricter plus fitting - You will probably need a new bolt - which may be a dealer part.
