THE Vikings have come – but instead of following their ancestors’ penchant for pillaging, these invaders are much friendlier…

The Viking captain, known as Bimha the Giant, pictured, has brought his crew on a converted long boat to King’s Cross – and as part of charity Food For All, aims to spread love rather than chaos.

Bimha, who stands 7 foot 1 inch in his socks, is a former professional wrestler who performed under the ring name of Titan Man.

Bimha, who lives on board the boat, is now using his impressive frame to raise awareness for of food poverty in Camden during the coronavirus crisis.

He said: “With our boat, we realised we had the opportunity to open a new food hub in King’s Cross and meet the needs of people living nearby.”

Anyone who wants a meal can access their project free.

Currently, Food For All serve more than 5,500 meals every day and have seen the need rise as the pandemic has hit.

The boat, now a food distribution hub, is currently moored on the Regent’s Canal between King’s Cross Lock and Granary Square.
