You will probably find that the locking nut under the sink is loose or cracked allowing movement. it will need replacing.

Probably needs a new tap washer, or the stem inside could be broken. But it needs stripping down to have a look.

Hi Tom,
Best to fit a nice new set of taps, they are not expensive.
Saves a lot of messing about, you could spend that amount getting a plumber in.
Easy diy job.
