Default Lighting help

Hello, I'm hoping somebody could help me as I've not long came out my time encountered a fault. There are 5 fluorescent lights in a toilet and 2 don't work I went a replaced one as my original instruction but it still didn't work. I got 230v when I go:
Earth to live
Earth to neutral
And earth to emg light feed
But if I go between either lives and neutral I get no volts. There on click roses which are all fed in pyro my guess is a lost neutral but I'm quite unsure and also how would you fix the problem,
