fossil fish tooth?

P1020407.JPGP1020410.JPG

Could you help identify these fossils.

The fossil was found washed up at Saltburn by the Sea shingle beach in the North East of England earlier this year.

I know there is two bivalve shells, but I have been told the tooth could be from a icthyosaur or possibly a fish.

Could anyone give me an identification and a time frame for the fossils.

thanks

    Need a bit closer and not too blurry image Inta, but if it is a Icthyosaur tooth from that area it will be Lower Jurassic about 200myo.

    I have blown the image up and I think it it is a tooth but has been subject to the beach system and has suffered some water rolling and wear.

    Don't think it is from a fish.

    Great find!
