Fossil small mammal pelvis. help identifying species please?

Found this fossilised pelvis on the foreshore today. I've looked in my "mammals of britain" (lawrence and brown) but unable to identify the species (none of those shown in the book). Anyone recognise it, or can point me to another reference book?

 

Probably pleistocene. Found on Suffolk Coast.

 

Ilium (mostly) and ischium are intact but pubis is mostly missing, but is stil quite distinctive. Appears to be vole sized.

 

Can I link this post to the identification>bones etc. discussion?
