My son found this in amongst some rocks down by the canal, can anyone shed any light to what it is if anything?

Don't think its flint then but after looking at some images from different angles of belemnite fossils it does look very much like it may be the tip of one. Thank you for your insight Rob.

Hello Kenny, I've tweaked some of your photos and it looks like the tip of a belemnite to me.

Thanks, the more I look at them the more I'm convinced that it is.

Radiating lines in the cross section (2nd pic) are the give-away, also what looks like a linear crack on one side (last pic) - both absolutely typical characteristics of belemnites

Stuart, these are not typical of All 'belemnites' - there are several types of 'belemnites' teuthids etc TqB is the expert on the subject.
