Removing jpeg artefacts

A client has supplied a jpeg image that needs resizing from 670 pixels high to 1280 pixels high and converting to B&W. The problem I have is it's a jpeg landscape with dark mountains and a light sky and this boundary has noticeable jpeg artefacts which are only made to look worse when resizing.

I don't normally work with jpegs and the original files aren't available, so I have to make do with what I've got. Does anyone have any experience of removing artefacts? A tool / piece of software would be ideal as I also don't have much time to work on the image. I've got PS 2 at my disposal.

Ed, would some kind of Noise Reduction software not do the trick, something like Noiseware?

Community Edition (Imagenomic) - basic but very good if used gently, and a FREEBIE.

Have you tried Genuine Fractals from OnOne. It very rare I use it but when I do it does an excellent job. Here's their website: here
