Hello,
No, you do not need a new visa and you do not need to do anything, you simply carry both your old and new passports with you when travelling outside the UK. You will be allowed into the UK without any problem.
Hope this helps

You do not need to worry about them unless you wish to apply for a Biometric card. I would advise you to staple or rubber band your old and new passports together.

All the best
