Default Remove hand written notes (pen/pencil marks) from scanned document

I'm looking for a program that would enable me to automatically remove the hand written notes from a scanned copy of a document.

Basically the scanned page is of black printed text but has a lot of handwritten blue pen markings scattered over it, underlining and circling words etc.
It's proving a very difficult and labourious task to try to remove them using PDF-XChange Editor!

So I was wondering if there's a program out there that would allow me to selectively remove a particular colour from a scanned document i.e. blue pen ink!
Perhaps if I scanned it in another format and used a graphics editor such as GIMP? Unfortunately I'm not familiar enough with using GIMP to know how to go about it or if it's even possible?

Any suggestions appreciated
