We prove that every (extended) Borel subset $E$ of $X\times Y$, where $X$ is complete metric and $Y$ is Polish, can be covered by countably many extended Borel sets with compact sections if the sections $E_x=\{y\in Y:(x,y)\in E\}$, $x\in X$, are $\sigma$-compact. This is a nonseparable version of a theorem of Saint Raymond. As a by-product, we get a proof of Saint Raymond's result which does not use transfinite induction.
