If only! I don't think we get Helicoprion in the UK. [wink]
Yours looks like part of the outside whorl of an ammonite (or just possibly a bit of bivalve but I think the curves fit ammonite better).

I second Tarquin's opinion of bivalve.
This fossil looks remarkably similar to some of the pecten-ish bivalves of the Yorkshire coast. Perhaps something similar to the Pseudopecten equivalvis from the Pecten seam at Staithes?
The ribbing just seems a touch too pronounced on this specimen for the ammonites I've seen from Lavernock.
