Hello, I think you have found a tooth that  belonged to Cosmopolitodus hastalis, indeed a mako-like shark.
Either Miocene or Pliocene in age.
Nice find!

greetings, Bert
the search is as valuable as the finds...

This is far more likely to be a partial Otodus obliquus. There are no Miocene deposits in the uk, and derived C. hastalis teeth would be far more worn from the redeposition process.
