Skeletal structure found on beach - Can someone please identify this for me?

Found this on the beach at Skegness on Boxing Day. A similar sized piece of blubber was also found upshore.

We've had a good search, looking at seals, sharks, whales, and even - in desperation - more exotic animals, but cannot identify an animal that has the same large bones (or cartilage) and hair like projections. Although unclear, the two sides (which look like a group of small bones) do appear to stretch out - like wings?

This was about 1.5 - 2m in length and was rather heavy (could not be lifted)

Please help!
