there is a small voltage between neutral and ground which causes sparking disconnect the neutrals at the c/u

Always disconnect Live and Neutral from consumer unit in these instances. I'd always put chocblocks (strip connectors) on the open ends aswell just incase some muppet reconnects the cables at some point....i will add within a domestic situation this should be the only use for the good old chocblock as there's far better other methods for jointing cables as a more perminant solution.
