Can I bring driftwood back to uk?

Can anyone tell me if I can fetch some driftwood back to the uk which I have found on the lake side? Ive checked the government website and and it all seems to refer to live plants.

Doubtful as it is untreated and there is a danger of bugs, fungus etc lurking in the wood.

Here's the Border Force pamphlet Bringing fruits, vegetables and plant products into the UK

For untreated wood from other countries outside of the EU (HAS A BIG RED 'X' next to all other countries)
