Help! Fossilized Bone?

Help! Want to know if there's a possibility this could be fossilized bone? I dug out of the cliff in an old chalk quarry along the north east coast of the UK near Scarborough/Filey known for fantastic fossils. Its completely different to the chalk that i pulled it out of, excuse the pun but it is rock solid whereas the chalk around it flaked and crumbled. Smells of the sea haha

    It is a piece of flint.

    Flints sometimes represent or include fossils, but there are many that are just strange shapes, some of which happen to look a bit like bones (or other things). Cavities in flint are not rare. Yours is just a strangely shaped piece of flint.
