In this paper we give two results about analytic sets. The first is a counterexample to a problem of Fremlin. We show that there exists ω1 compact subsets of a Borel set with the property that no σ-compact subset of the Borel set covers them. In the second section we prove that for any analytic subset A of the plane either A can be covered by countably many lines or A contains a perfect subset P which does not have three collinear points.
