Answered - Two fossils?

Hi, I would be grateful if anyone can help with the identification of the following two 'fossils'. I found them recently during a dig of the Thames foreshore at Tower Beach, London. The first image shows the object from the front and back. The second appears to be an impression (perhaps of a shell) in flint. Many thanks.

    Hi wade,

    the first looks like it could be a fossil sponge, and the second looks like the impression of an Inoceramid bivalve on flint, no expert, but possibly Cremnoceramus sp.?

    I agree with quagga.

    The first looks like a broken sponge, Porosphaera globularis & the other is an impression of an Inoceramus bivalve.

     

    Cheers
