Abstract: We prove the following two results. 1) There exists a non-separable complete metric space whose Wijsman hypertopology is not Cech-complete. 2) There exist a non-separable metrizable space and two compatible metrics on it, such that the collections of the Borel sets generated by the relative Wijsman hypertopologies do not coincide.
