Taking an Ei141 totally off the ceiling?

We need to completely remove one Ei141 ionisation smoke alarm from the ceiling to make way for a fitted wardrobe (not just remove the cover). Does anyone know how to safely do this?

Sorry to not agree with Harry, but the first thing an electrician will do is isolate them from the supply, so they will not be live. Next the cable for that detector should be removed completely and or any remaining cables moved accordingly. It depends how yours are configured as to how this is done. You don't actually require an electrician, a competent person can do this.

I would also have to ask, could the detector not be moved elsewhere in the room, as by removing it you are reducing your "cover"
