The two stories dominated the headlines on Wednesday morning
While it is perhaps unfair to say that there has been no "outrage or sadness" over this man's death - the ninth migrant to perish at the Channel Tunnel this summer - it does appear that the fate of Cecil, the lion inhumanely killed in Zimbabwe this week, has received more sympathy from some.
While Nigel Farage has called for the army to be drafted in, even David Cameron came across as crass when addressing the situation in Calais (albeit before news of the man's death had been announced):
I have every sympathy with holidaymakers who are finding access to Calais difficult because of the disturbances there and we will do everything we can to work with the French to bring these things to a conclusion.
There's no point trying to point fingers of blame, it's about working with the French, putting in place these additional security measures, adding in the investment where that's needed - Britain will always come forward with that.
Perhaps Britain could "come forward" with a bit more compassion for fellow human beings too.
